The Parable of the Firefighters and the Carpenter

Everyone has a home. It’s their home and they love it dearly, but due to the tribulations of life, they have let it fall into disrepair. There is a hole in the roof, wiring exposed, plumbing that leaks, and the foundation is cracked and unstable. They have two choices: to make the necessary repairs, or to let it degrade further. Most find the repairs too costly or time-consuming. So, they let it go, only to awake in the middle of the night to the smell of smoke. They run out of their house with an armful of their most prized possessions, call the fire department, and watch as the firefighters use their axes to bust out windows and knock down doors to get their hoses in and douse the walls, furniture, floors, appliances, heirlooms, and more. When the firefighters are done and the fire is out, they look at the house and say to the homeowner, “Our work here is done. It’s safe now.” The owner thanks them for saving the house. They did, indeed, do a great job. There is now something there to salvage. However, is this house now comfortable to live in? Is it even livable at all? The answer is a resounding “No.” Time to call the carpenter. He looks at the house and says “Wow! What a mess! We have a lot of work to do here. I wish you would’ve called me before this tragedy happened. I could have fixed it before it broke. I can fix your house, but it will take a lot of time and effort, now.” 

In this allegory, the allopathic doctor (MD) is the firefighter. They have the tools and the training for emergency/acute situations. However, axes and hoses (drugs and surgery) are not tools for repairing or rebuilding houses (bodies). This is why the carpenter, or holistic physician, is the better choice when it comes to chronic ailments, which, as a matter of fact, make up the overwhelming majority of doctors’ visits. Holistic physicians, like Doctors of Chiropractic, are especially adept at treating chronic conditions. Our training and our tools are designed to repair and restore the body, not to cover up symptoms. 

Nearly all disease processes are a result of a trauma, toxicity, deficiency, or hypersensitivity. The remaining are genetic, but those make up a mere fraction of a percent of all our health problems. The rest are all nurture, not nature. This means they can be cured.  Here at Paragon Wellness Center, we use modern testing techniques (serum, UA, stool, imaging, etc.) to determine the cause of your inflammation; the root of your disease. Then, we use tried and true holistic treatments to address the cause. The body will then begin to heal and function the way it was meant to, optimally, with no impediments, and no need for any medication
